3100000 - Swift Code Field is Not Enabled in Business Partner Apps

Symptom

Your requirement is to provide the Swift Code for the Bank Account of the Business Partner. But the Swift Code Field appears to be greyed out and you are unable to add the data in the field. Instead a hyphen character is present in the Swift Code field.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to any of the apps Manage Business Partner Master Data or Manage Customer Master Data or Manage Supplier Master Data
  2. Search for any Business Partner
  3. Go to tab Bank Accounts
  4. Select Edit
  5. Select the button Create
  6. Click on the arrow to go to the Bank Account details
  7. On the New Bank Accounts screen, the field label Swift Code is available, but there is no field to input the data. Instead a hyphen is visible in the field and Swift Code cannot be entered.

Cause

The Business Partner apps do not support maintenance of Bank Master data. Hence, the field Swift Code is read-only field on Manage Business Partner Master Data, Manage Customer Master Data and Manage Supplier Master Data apps. It is just to get the Swift Code information of Bank selected via the field Bank Key.

Resolution

The Maintain Business Partner app supports the maintenance of Bank Master Data due to legacy implementation. In the Manage Business Partner Master Data, Manage Customer Master Data and Manage Supplier Master Data apps, it is mandatory to have the Bank already existing in the system. For more information, you can look for Manage Banks App.
